Project 1.

We have been awarded funding by the Academies and Enterprise Trust (AET) to undertake research into the educational, linguistic and social integration of Slovakian Roma children at Firth Park Academy. Running from January to October 2015, the research involves participation of the staff, pupils and parents at Firth Park Academy. A major aim of the research is to identify best practice within key curriculum areas and to formulate whole-school policies that will facilitate the educational attainment of the Slovakian Roma pupils.

The project is directed by Mark Payne (University of Sheffield) and Harriet Edge (Firth Park Academy.

The Project Research Assistant is Tanja Prieler (University of Sheffield)

Project 2.

We have been awarded funding by AET to conduct a longitudinal 5-year study working with the Year 7 Slovak Roma pupils at Firth Park Academy commencing September 2015. This will enable us to work closely with the pupils and their families and to monitor progress and attainment in terms of English language skills and wider curriculum attainment. It will also allow us to monitor the impacts of migration on the educational progression of the children as they go through the school from Years 7-11.

The project is directed by Mark Payne (University of Sheffield) and Harriet Edge and David Tipping (Firth Park Academy).
